Episode 24. William Neill: Inside the Mind of a Landscape Photography Master

William Neill on Beyond The Lens Podcast

As a master landscape photographer, William Neill’s work conveys the deep, spiritual beauty he sees and feels in nature. He has been a resident of the Yosemite National Park area since 1977. He received ‘The Director’s Award’ from the National Park Service after a major portfolio of his Yosemite photographs entitled ‘Yosemite: The Promise of Wildness,’ were published by The Yosemite Association in 1994. His recent book, ‘Landscapes of the Spirit’ showcases a retrospective collection of his finest landscape photographs based on the theme of nature’s spiritual and healing powers.

In this episode, Richard ventured into the mind of William Neill to find out what inspires him, what gives his work such emotional depth, his passions, persistence and creativity, and more. William touches upon his time working in American landscape photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams’ gallery, sharing what inspired him to photograph Yosemite. He explains why he puts experiencing a place above the results.
